Re: Deer Park preferences window corrupted

On an up to date -development system the preferences window of Deer Park
alpha 2 is unusable.  While some of the text can just barely be read, most
of it is unreadable.  Only the 6 tabs along the top of the window can be
read, but even they are broken up and hard to read.

Most of the Edit->Preferences window is see-through (ie. as you move the
window around you actually see the contents of the desktop, or window
below it).  If a screen shot would help, i'd be happy to post one.

Nobody else seems to mention this problem in Bugzilla or in the archives
so i'm wondering if this isn't actually a problem with the X.org server?
Bugzilla 155213 does mention a problem with i865 video, but i'm not sure
it's related.

Perhaps the Deer Park preferences window is supposed to be translucent and
that feature is just not working on X.org for i865 based video?   Dmesg
does seem to show the kernel complaining a bit, at least about the

Looking for someone to give me a nudge in the right direction as to how to
tackle this problem.


Try renaming your .mozilla directory, restart firefox, and see if it helps.

[I sort of remember some issue with something there.]
